Q. How to script a self checking starting rc.d script

We are moving from RHEL/CentOS Linux to FreeBSD.   On one of our Linux
boxes we currently have an ssh pipe to a remote imap service.  This is
a straight-forward ssh tunnel.  In the past there have been
circumstances where this connection has failed.  In order to
automatically re-establish the pipe I wrote an 'upstart' job to set up
the pipe and automatically restart after a stoppage.

How is this sort of thing handled in FreeBSD?  Through cron monitoring?
